Subscription Sites

FHWA Library computers have the following subscription sites available to members, and temporary daily and one month pass visitors.

There is a limited number of seats available for some subscription sites, as shown in the table below; if all available seats for the site are in use, you may not be able to use the service. Members who wish to use subscription services should book the service a few days in advance to avoid disappointment. If you turn up without prior booking you may find that the service is in use and may not be available that day. Bookings slots are for an hour at a time.

Phone FHWA reception desk on 9271 4311 to book the required subscription service.

A FHWA Library volunteer is available to help you with your research and how to use the subscription that you need.
